Overall our visit exceeded expectations. The caves are indeed amazing with some unexpectedly spectacular sections. There are a lot of poorly lit steps however so probably not ideal for very old or very young (the kids in our group were 9+). The caves are not...More

It was a fun tour with great views. The tour was in Dutch and French; I think the guide would have included English on request. The path is somewhat challenging with lots of stairs and varying terrain. I carried my infant in a chest sack;...More
